Fifteen years ago today, Fierce, Inc. was born. It has been an amazing journey. As Susan Scott, Fierce founder & CEO wrote, “Life is curly, don’t try to straighten it out.” Trust me, we enjoy each twist, twirl, and turn.
I have been with Fierce for almost seven years. I have witnessed how the work changes lives. And I am so grateful that it has changed mine. It has opened my mind and heart to navigate through life more thoughtfully. More courageously. Fierce has given me the skill to lean in and have the conversations that are central to happiness, success, and much more.
So on this beautiful celebration, I want to take the time to thank the people who have been central to Fierce’s success. We would not be here without you.
